The Permanent Supportive Housing Program (PSHP) provides permanent housing and supportive services to individuals and families with histories of homelessness to ensure housing stabilization; self-sufficiency and an overall better quality of life.
All individuals and families must register at a Coordinated Access Site such as The Beacon to determine eligibility before being able to access AVENUE 360 PSHP.
Rapid Re-Housing Program (RHRP) provides financial assistance, counseling, and other services to prevent families and individuals from being evicted, losing their homes, and becoming homeless. Money will also be used to help those who are currently experiencing homelessness find both short term and permanent long term housing or apartments and stay in the new housing units.
This type of case management focuses on determining the need for specific levels of housing assistance and helping the household identify and obtain affordable housing.
